Rewarding and recognising part-time teachers at Plymouth

7 Feb

What a real pleasure it has been working at Plymouth this week encouraging part time academics and learning support staff to apply for Associate Fellowship of the HEA (as well as supporting others going for other levels). As far as I am aware Plymouth is the only university aiming to get high numbers of their Associate Lecturers and learning supporters to get AFHEA accreditation.  Around 55 worked with me this week and seem to be well on the way to doing it. Congratulations to PVC Pauline Kneale for leading this great initiative and to Priska, Lucy and others for running a great, well-formulated accredited scheme.
